Three male students allegedly shot a video of a 19-year-old girl changing her clothes in the bathroom of a city-based institute, where all of them study, and later tried to extort money from her by threatening to circulate the clip, police said.


The police have arrested one of the accused and a search is on for two others, they said.



The accused and the victim study at the Industrial Training Institute (ITI) located in Govindpura area of the city in Madhya Pradesh. The trio had captured the video of the girl student on September 17, when she was changing her clothes in the bathroom of the institute after attending a programme organised to mark Vishwakarma Jayanti, an official said.


"The accused showed the video to one of the victim's friends and demanded Rs 7,000, threatening that if she failed to do so, they would make the clip viral on social media. After the victim came to know about this, she panicked and left her house," Piplani Police Station in-charge Ajay Nayar said while quoting the complaint.
